7:03 am
welcome to cbs "this morning." we have new information on one of the largest cyber attacks to ever hit the united states government it targeted at least four million federal employees and could affect every government agency. >> this morning, china's government says allegations that chinese hackers carried out the attack are irresponsible. major garrett is at the white house talking with his sources about the attack. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. u.s. officials say chinese hackers either working for the central government or indirectly on its behalf are the leading suspects in this massive cyber attack. the u.s. government is not so sure as it was back in december of 2014 when first the fbi then president obama publicly blamed north korea for a cyber attack on sony pictures entertainment. china's the leading suspect based on the malicious software used and the information
7:04 am
targeted. u.s. officials blamed chinese hackers for infiltrating the office of personnel management in march of 2014. that same agency was struck in this attack as was the interior department. historically, chinese hackers have sought information on federal worker personnel background and profiles. for this reason u.s. officials fear the hackers this time may well have obtained access to information about background checks and security clearances on current and former federal employees. chinese hackers gravitate to this information u.s. officials told us, to make the spies that they send to the united states look as normal as possible filling their own background files with information similar to what they gained from hacking into u.s. government computers. chinese hackers are far more interested in this data than personal financial information officials told us. now government investigators first detected this hack in april and within weeks confirmed it penetrated the office of personnel management and the
7:05 am
interior department. neither system was protected by the government's newest cyber defense system called einstein. that system is due to be installed across all the federal government in 2016. it currently protects about half of the federal government officials told us. president obama has been briefed on all of this and the size and scope of this cyber attack is unprecedented and an embarrassment to an administration that's made cyber security a top priority. as one official told us charlie, this is bad, there is no way to put lipstick on this pig. >> major, thanks. sean henry is the former head of the fbi's cyber security branch he's now president of crowdstrike services, a private internet security firm. welcome. >> thank you. >> what makes this significant and troubling? >> i think it's the breadth of this, what we're learning about the type of data that was accessed and the volume of data that was accessed. this is not the first time something like this has happened. the u.s. government has been targeted for many years by a lot of different actors but what we're seeing here and the fact the government is coming out as quickly as they are, they're
7:06 am
alerting the public i think that's a positive point. >> and the chinese element? >> they're saying it's china. some of the allegations that we hear it would not surprise me in the least although there could certainly be other actors, there a lot of people interested in this type of information. we'll see as this investigation continues where it goes. >> we just heard major report, though, this is to help chinese spies here in the united states. what does that tell us about the aggressiveness of china, if they are involved? >> well we've looked at china for a long time targeting the commercial sector, looking for intellectual property and research and development. if, in fact this is china and they're targeting information regarding government employees past and presidentent, it's indicative of collecting intelligence that would allow them to have some added value as they target human beings in the future trying to collect information, perhaps trying to penetrate u.s. government agencies. >> so how does this happen to the federal government? you would think it would be very secure. how concerned are you? you're a former government
7:07 am
employee. >> it's absolutely of concern. what this does is shine a light on the much-larger problem which is our networks are all inherently insecure and the very information that we rely on everyday is susceptible to being stolen or more importantly, being destroyed. we've seen networks actually destroyed by hackers where they have harmed hardware and stopped is it from working. so it's a significant concern here and it's something that we have to be worried about going forward. we have to learn to better detect these attacks because we won't prevent people from getting in all the time. >> and better learn fast. >> we better learn fast. this is a wakeup call. people need to take action. >> sean henry, thank you for coming in today. colorado is bracing for the threat of more tornados hail and heavy rain after a day of violent weather. listen to the sound of that. at least nine tornados touched down in the northern part of the state damaging more than two dozen homes. a cleanup is under way in
7:08 am
merced. at least 300 homes were destroyed in that community 40 miles north of denver. that number could rise as inspectors assess the damage later today. and golf ball sized hail battered denver and blanketed the streets. the storms caused flooding in some areas. hail also coated roads in lyons where drivers made their way through slick conditions. no injuries are reported. more than 100 tourists are scrambling to safety after a powerful earthquake trapped them on one of southeast asia's tallest expect a. officials say at least 10 climbers on the mountain are hurt, two severely. the magnitude 6.0 rocked mount kinabalu early today. charlie d'agata is following the rescue operation from london. >> we contacted the u.s. embassy in malaysia and they told us they don't know if americans are stranded on the mountain. some pictures in the region show roads that buckled and collapsed because of the power of the earthquake. you may see some video posted on social media that appears to
7:09 am
show mount kin ballou the moment the quake struck. people can be heard shouting "run run" and asking if everyone is safe. rockfalls and landslides cut off a key trail leading down. some pictures show some of the stranded climbers waiting for rescue. around a dozen people are thought to have been injured. a ranger said helicopters are struggling to reach them because of poor visibility and there's a cold night ahead. charlie? >> thank you so much charlie. the family of a man accused of planning an isis-inspired attack said he was not radicalized by terrorists. usaama rahim was shot and killed tuesday after a confrontation with a counterterror task force. his nephew david wright is being questioned and a third man is being questioned. jeff pegues shows us what investigators are focusing on. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, we are learning more about usaama rahim. his teachers describe him as a promising young student. while his family insists his
7:10 am
demeanor had not changed, authorities who began monitoring him 24 hours a day believe he had become radicalized by isis. last night the family of usaama rahim left the suffolk county district attorney's office after watching the surveillance video of the shooting for the first time. earlier at the scene of this deadly confrontation with police his family denied any knowledge that he had been plotting an attack on law enforcement. >> that comes as an absolute surprise to the family. they had not perceived any conduct or change in demeanor with usaama consistent with those reports. >> reporter: in a statement, staff members of the high school rahim attended in 2007 called him a bright young man who had no major disciplinary infractions. rahim's widow chose not to address the media thursday but his aunt denied allegations he had been radicalized. >> no, it is not with isis. i do not believe it is. >> reporter: investigators say
7:11 am
rahim became inspired by isis propaganda online along with his nephew david wright who is in police custody. investigators believe the two discussed an isis-style beheading, possibly of controversial critic of islam pamela geller. but in a recorded conversation authorities say rahim decided to go after the boys in blue instead, allegedly calling them the easiest target. in rhode island, federal officials have searched the house of a man from warwick who they say met with rahim and wright over the weekend. investigators believe they discussed attacks on victims outside of massachusetts. that third man has not been charged with a crime. investigators have not made the surveillance video of the shooting public. we've learned it is expected to be released some time after rahim's funeral which is set for later today. >> thank you, jeff. this morning, vice president joe biden is preparing to say a final good-bye to his oldest son beau. he died last week of brain cancer. the former delaware attorney

7:13 am
>> reporter: the vice president stood closest to it somber at first but later smiled humbled by the receiving line that stretched for blocks outside he greeted each mourner with hand shakes, often enveloping them that trademark biden bear hug. >> the biden family is delaware's family. >> >> reporter: in a service at the capital, the vice president wiped tears away as delaware governor jack markel recounted both accomplish beau's accomplishments as state attorney general. memories were shared by families, friends and colleagues. >> trust me. when he was there everybody who met him loved him instantly. >> reporter: the state speaker of the house described the time beau dropped by his office just to give him a hug. the same way his father might have done. >> i said "that's it? you want to give me a hug?" he said "that's it. you're my friend. i don't see you that much. requests that's the beau i knew. that's the beau carol and i

alexandrov. he told us he is a member of russian special forces and he was deployed to ukraine with 200 soldiers on a secret mission in march. russia has said alexandrov resigned from the army last year. recently his wife appeared on russian tv to confirm the kremlin's narrative. "those were not her words" he told us. "those words were rehearsed." have you tried to speak to her? have you tried to call her? "she doesn't answer the phone" he said. so you believe the russian government instructed her to say these words? russia has consistently denied it has any military personnel in ukraine. but authorities here say russian soldiers are training and arming and leading the separatists. vitaly nida is head of technology for ukraine's cia. >> we consider at least 8,000 rush russians on the territory of

>> seems senseless. thank you very much barry petersen. the so-called little pink pill is one big step closer this morning to going on the markd. after saying no twice an fda panel on thursday recommended the first medication for female sexual dysfunction but there are big questions. our dr. tara narula is following the controversy. the margin of approval was big, 18-6, but there were stringed attached and concerns. you have concerns, too. >> that's right. i think when you listen to the panelists yesterday you could tell even though 18 voted in favor there was a lot of reticence and hesitation and better than the desire of what this pill offers. the concerns were that this pill has side effects and the benefits are marginal or modest in terms of improving sexual desire or sexually satisfying events. we don't have long-term safety data on this drug and the population of women this drug was studied in was relatively healthy. but what happens in the general
7:37 am
population in women who have other medical conditions or who may be using other medications? so there are big questions around was this the right decision or will it bt the right decision when the fda decides if it will improve it. >> there are real questions about the side effects, right? >> and the biggest concern is what we call syncope or passing out. this isn't a drug you take at night and go to sleep. that is drug you take everyday and go out and have your daily routine. so if you pass out while driving a car or while you're taking your kids to school, this can be serious and unexpected so it's concerning. some of the other side effects were what happens in terms of giving this pill to pre-menopausal women who are sexually active and you're taking a sex drug and they get pregnant. is this going to affect their fertility? is it going to affect the fetus? finally what happens when the drug is combined with other centrally acting agents like cholg or medications that affect the central nervous system. >> with all these questions why do you think this panel approved?
7:38 am
>> i think the panel sense there had's an unmet need and there are women who are suffering from uh-uh hsdd or this disorder. they heard two hours of testimony. they felt like even though this may not be the perfect option this is an option and we can give it to the public in a way we protect them by having risk strategies in place in terms of watching what happens to the drug once it's out there, in terms of requiring m.d.s to prescribe it to be certified so they did recommend approval with caveats. >> do you assume there will be asflooufl. >> i think the fda will fool low what the panel recommends. it's not a guarantee. if it's approved we should hear about it in august. >> and it's called female viagra but you said it shouldn't be called viagra because it works differently. >> it's a complete misnomer and it's very misleading. viagra works on erectile
